A part of the ancient monastery of Mor Gabriel, 15 km (9 miles) away from the town of Midyat, in Mardin province of southeast Turkey July 18, 2012. Tucked amid rugged hills where mosques and minarets are silhouetted in the distance, the fifth century Mor Gabriel monastery stands out as a relic of another era when hundreds of thousands of Syriac Christians lived and worshipped in Turkey. But a land dispute between Mor Gabriel and neighbouring villages is threatening the monastery's future. Democratic Peoples' Congress (NGO) members of the Syrian Court of Cassation in the district of Mardin, Midyat to have belonged to the treasury of the Mor Gabriel monastery ruled over the land reacted.
